'"Magun: Man of the Black Wind" is the second episode of Final Fantasy: Unlimited.
The episode begins directly after the previous episode, with the black cloaked man returning the Magun to its sealed form. Alone, he turns and departs, with both Lisa and Ai refusing to allow Yu to follow. The man's memories seem to awaken within him as he gasps, remembering the face of a man in white. Despite this, the man continues to walk away, with Yu uttering his name; Kaze.
Atop a cliff, overlooking Lisa and the children, the man that was watching before drops a pink marionette to the ground, and begins to conduct it, despite the lack of strings. He calls it "Crux" and its joints disappear, giving it the image of a small girl with wings. With a simple "kukuruyu" Crux flies after the trio, watching from above.
Meanwhile, the man in white is seen sitting on the ledge of a fortress floating in the clouds. Inside a plump child sits in what appears to be the throne of a magnificent throne room, while a man dressed like a military commander and a green, plant-like woman sit nearby.
A small spider like robot shows the child a short recording of Kaze firing the Magun, which instantly angers the child greatly, screaming about a betrayal. The commander's name is revealed to be Fungus as he requests permission to counteract this threat, and the woman to be Herba as she berates him.
The man that released Crux, revealed to be Oscha, appears from the shadows, and informs the child of his releasing Crux to follow them.
As Kaze walks through the streets of the city, he recalls a scene of great destruction, and muttering to himself about someone called White Cloud, that he deems responsible for the destruction. Meanwhile Lisa and the children are seen to be searching the surrounding wastelands for human population, without much success.
The journey comes to a halt when Yu spots a familiar bird; the one from the city. It now has a collar on, but proves it is the same bird by grasping Ai's hair once more. Just like before, the bird races off with Yu giving chase, until Yu loses it in a forest. After the other two catch up, an old woman appears riding a bird similar to the one they were chasing, and with the bird in question standing beside her. She introduces herself as Chocobaba.
A brief discussion reveals the birds are called chocobos, but before any further information can be gleaned from the strange woman her chocobo screeches and takes off, leaving the trio and the chocobo they were following behind. Noticing a chocobo feather with a clip attached on the ground, Yu picks it up. Before anything can be made of it, a bomb falls nearby, releasing more mushroom monsters. Lisa is quickly incapacitated, the children, surrounded. As they huddle in fear the feather begins to glow, and suddenly the chocobo leaps into action, kicking one of the mushroom monsters into submission before fleeing.
The monsters quickly close the gap, but gun shots are heard and the mushrooms fall to the ground, holes blasted in them. Kaze appears behind the children; he has something he wants to ask them. More mushrooms appear. Using a handgun Kaze easily dispatches them. Fungus appears before them; though he calls Kaze by name, Kaze opens fire, but the handgun proves no use against Fungus. Kaze primes and and loads the Magun, Fungus calmly and confidently goading him on. Kaze fires, summoning a fist-sized creature that creates a box around Fungus, then compresses everything within into nothing, completely destroying Fungus as Crux watches from overhead.
Recovering from the incident, Kaze questions Lisa and the children about this "White Cloud", but with no success. Yu attempts to persuade Kaze to come with them, but he wordlessly turns and leaves. Yu, remembering the feather, clips it to his hair, just as the chocobo returns and squawks loudly.
Yu claims that the subway will leave soon, and they need to return to it quickly, and on that note, they follow the chocobo and return to the subway.
One combination of soil is seen in this episode:
- More infinite than the open sky/An infinity that surpasses the heavens - Sky Blue
- Perfection that pierces the earth/A completeness that goes through solid ground - Grand Brown/Earth Brown
- A deception to twist reality/The deception to hollow out a dimension - Magic Violet
This creates Typhoon, which compressed a cubic box of space until nothing remains.
